Meanwhile, Richmond pays a visit to Mayor Adams. As Adams says goodbye to some associates, Richmond eyes a book by Cicero. Adams wraps up and notes that Cicero could have been even more powerful than he was if he'd bided his time patiently. Instead, he was hunted down, his hands and head cut off to be displayed in public. Adams suggests that Richmond would be wise to bow out of the mayoral race now and try his luck again in four years. Richmond assures Adams he hasn't lost his fighting spirit yet, though it definitely seems to be on the wane as he walks out glumly.
He makes his way to the SPD to take Linden to task for talking to the press when she promised to keep quiet. She insists she did no such thing and basically wonders, "What's to be done now?" He tells her angrily to make the arrest.
High school. Everyone's back to normal -- save Jasper and Sterling. Some guys watch a stupid video on a phone, which Mr. Ahmed quickly confiscates, mumbling that these kids never cease to amaze him. He addresses Rosie's death and tells the students that grief counselors will be in the gym all day to help students. Sterling runs out in tears, with Jasper following close behind.
Linden returns to the hospital as Holder has a hush-hush conversation about easing into the department. He abruptly hangs up, then reports that Rosales is conscious but doped-up on morphine and can't have visitors. Linden sends him to work his magic on the nurse so she can slip into Rosales' room to question him. She shows him a picture of Rosie from the Halloween dance and asks if he saw Rosie in The Cage on Friday night. His heart escalates as he confirms that he saw Rosie with Jasper. A nurse comes in and tells Linden to leave, but not before Rosales points to a picture of Jasper's jackass friend Kris. That information secured, Linden is ready to leave. As she walks out, Rosales coughs and sputters, "El diablo."
